Introduction by Atossa Soltani, Founder and Executive Director of Amazon Watch
The legendary Amazonian defender of the rainforest and its peoples was the first rubber tapper ever elected to Brazil’s federal Senate, served as Minister of the Environment under Lula, and ran as the 2010 Green Party Presidential candidate, gaining as astonishing 19 percent of the vote. She will depict how we can balance protecting the Amazon and other vital ecosystems with sane development that brings people out of poverty without destroying the environment.
